COMMERCIAL BALUSTRADE INSTALLATION IN LONDON

commercial-glass-balustrade-london-03

Case study of a Commercial Glass Balustrade in London. 

Waterloo Station in London is a key transport hub for the city and one of Britain’s busiest train stations with 99.4 million journeys each year.

It’s also the largest train station in the UK, with more platforms and floor space than any other. The station is therefore, subject to regular overcrowding during peak times. This also means that any installations or upgrades to the infrastructure require careful consideration. This is to ensure that the improvements meet the appropriate health and safety measures.

The client knew that they needed to install a commercial glass balustrade, in central London, so they approached Pure Vista. As specialists in this type of project we were able to provide a suitable solution using our MEGAgrip or BLASTguard balustrade systems. 

Pure Vista were able to propose two solutions for this project.

There were two options, either they could opt for the MEGAgrip balustrade system, a commercial-appropriate system with up to a 3.00kN loading capacity (as specified by UK building regulations BS 6180:2011 for this type of installation). Or, the second option is using BLASTguard, a fortified version of Mega Grip. This has been successfully tested to withstand a bomb blast and is ideal for areas that may be susceptible to terror attacks. 

Since MEGAgrip can easily be turned into BLASTguard using a simple converter-kit, Waterloo Station opted for MEGAgrip at this installation. However, they do still have the option to convert this into a bomb-resistant system in the future.

The pictures below show our MEGAgrip balustrade in situ in Waterloo Station along side train tracks being used as a safety barrier. The sleek looking design fits well with the overall look of the station and blends in nicely with the location.
